REVEALED: Liverpool can't afford Barcelona attacker Dembele - even on-loan

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp faces having to pass on signing Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The Daily Express says Liverpool cannot afford to sign Dembele even on loan.

Klopp is an admirer of the forward but reports suggesting the Reds will move for the Barcelona star this summer are wide of the mark.

When loaning out Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich, Barcelona demanded an £8m loan fee and wages paid in full, with Liverpool deeming a move too expensive.

Now in the middle of a pandemic, their stance will the same for Dembele.

The 23-year-old is thought to be paid around £200,000 a week by the Catalan heavyweights.
